    Washington Week Hillary Clinton Makes History as Democratic Nominee & Trump Steals Spotlight with Russia Request Hillary Clinton will declare a "moment of reckoning for America" when she becomes the first woman to accept the Democratic nomination for president Thursday night. In her historic speech, Clinton is expected to lay out the stark choice facing voters this fall. Her message will emphasize the inclusiveness and diversity of the Democratic Party in an attempt to convince conservative voters disillusioned by Republican Donald Trump to back her bid for the White House. Mr. Trump managed to steal the spotlight from the Democrats during their convention when he seemed to encourage Russia to hack Mrs. Clintons email. Trump said, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing." The billionaire businessman later said that he was being "sarcastic" when he suggested that foreign powers hack his presidential rival's email.
